D.C. United vs. New England Revolution

Where: RFK Stadium.

When: 7 p.m. TV: Comcast SportsNet.

Records: United 2-14-4, 10 points; Revolution 7-7-6, 27.

D.C. probable starters: GK Joe Willis; Ds James Riley, Dejan Jakovic, Daniel Woolard, Chris Korb; MFs Nick DeLeon, Perry Kitchen, Luis Silva, Kyle Porter; Fs Dwayne De Rosario, Casey Townsend.

N.E. probable starters: GK Bobby Shuttleworth; Ds Andrew Farrell, A.J. Soares, Jose Goncalves, Darrius Barnes; MFs Diego Fagundez, Scott Caldwell, Clyde Simms, Lee Nguyen, Kelyn Rowe; F Saer Sene.

Outlook: United returned to its wretched ways last weekend with a 4-1 loss at Chicago, extinguishing an upbeat stretch of soccer. F Conor Doyle, acquired on loan from England’s Derby County, began training this week and is eligible to play. De Rosario (hip flexor) and MF-F Chris Pontius (hamstring) are officially listed as questionable after missing the Chicago match. United has recorded nine goals — fewer than four individuals around the league — and has failed to score multiple goals in an MLS match since April 21. New England has conceded 18 goals, tied for the league low with Portland. United GK Bill Hamid remains on U.S. national team assignment at the CONCACAF Gold Cup. D.C. and New England already have met twice: a 0-0 regular season draw in Foxborough, Mass., and a 3-1 United victory in the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals at Maryland SoccerPlex. Fagundez, 18, leads the Revolution in scoring with six goals and four assists.
